How is your garden going?

It is a beautiful day in the Sylvania Area Family Services (SAFS) garden that is participating as one of the Victory Gardens in Lucas County Ohio. The garden has been used as an outdoor classroom for their summer camp, and all produce is harvested and distributed as part of their weekly choice food pantry.

The sunflowers just began blooming and bring a smile to everyone’s face who visits the garden!

The cucumbers in the garden are coming on strong. We have trellised the cucumbers with metal posts and twine.

It is important at this time of the year to keep up on harvesting, to keep the plants producing.

A huge thank you to Master Gardener Volunteers Barb, Cathy and Grace for your hard work in the garden; Jess our 4-H Educator and Patrice our FCS Educator for the educational sessions for youth; and the Sylvania Area Family Services as the host site.
